Music Masters Camps offer a highly interactive experience, bridging the gap between artist and audience. The camps provide a unique opportunity for participants and world-class artists to meet and collaborate in an inspired and creative atmosphere at this pastoral, one hundred acre mountain resort, "dedicated to the celebration of music and the arts in nature".
The host artist creates the format, agenda and curriculum. Some camps have an "academic" feel, incorporating elements of music theory, master classes and instrumental ensembles while others are more casual with a social and festival oriented atmosphere. All Music Masters Camps provide an extremely high quality musical experience, enhanced by the presence of talented "counselors", including band members, associated musicians, special guests and industry professionals.
Ultimately, the common thread through the Music Masters Camps experience is the integration of academic, instructional and social elements, as well as personal interface with the artists- not only at forums, panels, classes, and jam sessions, but also at breakfast, lunch and dinner and throughout evening activities.
Whether you are a musician or an enthusiastic fan, Music Masters Camps are specifically designed to provide an inspirational and interactive experience, offering the opportunity to truly take a step "Beyond Backstage."
